IRISH NOISE! – Alarmist (Bandcamp Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music with tags , , , , on November 19, 2010 by Tickets There

Irish people can鈥檛 get enough of the auld instrumental these days. Without name checking a bunch, let鈥檚 just say the market is quickly becoming one of the most loved on the underground scene, even beating the Def Leppard Retro Revival Coven Tickets There started well over five years ago. These things are a fad of course while Def Leppard is forever, bow down.

Anyways, since 鈥榯he world鈥 is pressuring us to continue taking about what鈥檚 鈥榠n鈥, we thought you might like to hear about Alarmist, an up and coming instrumental band from Dublin. So far we鈥檝e only heard two tunes and already we鈥檙e hearing a distinction in their music not duplicated from the others currently making names for themselves. For fans of Chequerboard and The Rednecks, these guys are for you. Well orchestrated music delivered with excitement and excellent playing ability. Not convinced with Giraffe Centre ?(I know, but thinking of quality names is harder these days), then the ending of Vitamin Saturday (really hard) will sell it to ya.

The band aren鈥檛 heavy, but they鈥檙e also not so devoid of sound that鈥檇 you fall asleep buying their album. Very nice from a new crowd and one we鈥檒l be revisiting once they get a few more finalized tracks together. Check them out when they play The Workman鈥檚 Club, Thursday November 25th.

…oh, and hop over to their Bandcamp Profile for a spin of le tunes 馃槈

Enjoy!
